Chunky it may be, easy to use it's not
on 7 January 2016
Why are so many of the recipes in this 'Cooking for One' book for 2 or more people??
And maybe its a little thing, but I have wasted a lot of time looking for the recipe to go with the cover picture, because I wanted to have a go at it - and its not in there!
Whilst it seemed like a good idea - to me when I decided to buy it - to have so many recipes in one book, finding what you want is hard work if you don't already know the name of it. 400 pages requires a lot of flicking through!!
Because the binding of this book has to be virtually broken to keep it open at the required page I'm not sure how long it will be before it starts falling apart.
It's another of these cookery books where the instructions are written out like a story. That may make for good presentation on the page, but its harder to follow when you're cooking as you can so easily lose your place and miss steps that matter.
I don't find this 'Chunky' book very easy to use so won't be adding to their future sales.
